West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce called in his players on Sunday following their poor defeat to Chelsea.

The Mirror says West Ham's players were due to have yesterday as a day off.

But Allardyce, who hauled off Joe Cole and Jack Collison before half time on Saturday, told his men to scrap their plans.

Allardyce has nominated the next two matches - against Fulham and Crystal Palace - as must-win games.
